Kingsland Public Schools - Academic Calendar for SY2018-2019
The School board approved next year's (SY2018-2019) academic calendar.  The calendar has school beginning two weeks earlier than normal on Monday, August 20, 2018.  The purpose behind starting school before Labor Day is to provide a longer summer in 2019.  The school district is undertaking a major health and safety project requiring additional time needed for the summer of 2019.  I want to assure our families that we will work with you regarding vacation plans and state and county fairs (FFA/4H).  We will hold-harmless our students needing to be gone during the early start window.  Our staff is prepared to work with you for their success.  Please communicate early and often with our office secretaries as your August plans begin to take shape.  Again, we are here to support you.  Calendar link is here.
